[Client Values; Actual values in
Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

T-54 first prototype


VIII

annoR112_T54_45.png

8750

The T-54 first prototype is a Soviet tier 8 premium medium tank.

Developed at Factory No. 183 in 1944. It was based on the T-44, with many components modified to enhance the armor and armament of the new vehicle. According to one source, the first prototype was built at the end of 1944. However, some other sources mention another date—January 1945. The tank underwent trials in March and April 1945, but never entered mass production.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Low profile, good camouflage values
  • Very well-armored for a medium tank
  • Above average DPM
  • Acceptable APCR round
  • High agility (44deg/second turn speed)


Cons:


  • Very low ammo capacity (34 rounds)
  • Poor acceleration and top speed
  • Relatively low HP
  • Mediocre gun depression
  • Very poor AP shell penetration


Performance

In short, the T-54 First Prototype is effectively a T-44 with increased armor and hit points at the expense of mobility and speed, or a Type 59 with reduced turret armor and penetration, increased upper hull plate and gun soft stats, and full matchmaking.

It makes up for its lack of speed and penetration with thick frontal armor, allowing it to effectively nullify many guns with less than 175mm of penetration, making this tank extremely dangerous at top tier. The upper hull plate thickness is 120mm, but the angling gives it an effective thickness of over 200mm at its weakest point, while the lower frontal plate of the same thickness gives around 160mm of effective thickness. With even a slight angling, the upper plate's effective thickness increases to 240mm, while the lower plate can reach 183mm, making it impossible to penetrate without the use of gold rounds for many Soviet vehicles using the 122mm guns, and nearly all tier 6 vehicles. The only actual weak spot is the turret, with the mantlet having 180mm of thickness with no armor behind it, a low-profile cupola located at the left side of the turret, and the roof, which is only 15mm thick, and can be shot at a downward angle from taller tanks such as the Tiger II, M6, and KV-5. Needless to say, its armor is virtually useless against most tier 9 and 10 vehicles that it faces on a regular basis, so a less aggressive play style is advised as a bottom-tier.

Despite its great armor, the offensive capabilities of this tank are limited; Having only 183mm of penetration on its AP shells makes it almost impossible to penetrate higher tier opponents frontally, and even sometimes struggling against the side armors of some vehicles. Thankfully, its Damage Per Minute is slightly above average, and its APCR shell has a decent penetration of 235mm, which can frontally penetrate most weak spots and side armor. Additionally, its premium vehicle status can help offset the credit cost of premium shells. It should be noted that this tank can only carry a total of 34 shells, so running out of ammunition is a possibility.

The mobility is somewhat below average compared to other tier 8 medium tanks, but hull and turret traverse speeds retain a favorable speed, making it competitive at close-range brawling. While it cannot circle around most heavy tanks without sustaining a few hits, it can easily bring its gun around against light tanks.

While the view range on this tank is relatively poor at 360 meters, its camouflage value is decent, which makes scouting somewhat viable with the use of concealment.

In conclusion, for a relatively cheap premium tank at tier 8, this is an excellent vehicle. In the right hands, this prototype can easily earn large amounts of credits, as long as its strengths and weaknesses are properly understood.
